Blessed Henry Abbot
- 4 July
He was approached by a Protestant minister who claimed to be searching for a priest so he could reconcile with the Church.
When Henry arranged a meeting with a priest who was in hiding due to state persecution of Catholics, the minister betrayed them to the authorities.
Henry was imprisoned and executed for the crime of hiding a priest.
